Peter knew better than to get offended because Jesus had told the disciples, Blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me Matthew Yet Peter became so offended and insulted after that incident that he backslid. John, the youngest disciple, was different from Peter; and that was because he had divine love. God loves you enough to show you His will, and you must love and honor Him enough to do things His way and keep your common sense opinions out of the way.
The Bible tells us what divine love is in I Corinthians Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing I Corinthians ,2. Divine love lasts, and it is for real.
When you love your brothers and sisters in Christ, you will pray for those who are sick or in trouble. Charity [love] suffereth long, and is kind I Corinthians Charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up [full of ego] I Corinthians When you get offended and turn your back on the truth, you will never make it to Heaven. Who would reject something like that? The Lord says we are to have no fellowship with such people. Charity never faileth I Corinthians ,8. The world will know those who are truly of the Lord because they have love one for another.
Jesus said, By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another John It is easy to depend on common sense because it is so much a part of human nature; but the Bible says, Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding Proverbs You have to trust Him with your whole heart. In all thy ways [no exceptions] acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths Proverbs When you only honor the Lord in some of your ways, you will make foolish mistakes and fail to use the wisdom of God. Only when you acknowledge God in all your ways will He direct all your paths.
You have to trust in the Lord, in His divine blood, in His promises and in His grace. My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness II Corinthians You have to trust in His promises and live by them or you will not be where God wants you to be. Jesus said, Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing John ,5.
The Lord has made many promises to His children; and if you abide in Him and hold on to those promises, they will be fulfilled, even if it is days, weeks or years later. You will find the ways of God in His Word, but do you want His ways? Some people will say they want the will of God, but they only want His way if it matches what they want.
I live in the truth of God, and that is why I am free and they are not. I want the will of God no matter what it costs me. Then the Lord took him to Heaven alive.

By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God Hebrews The members of the Bride will please the Lord, and they will go to Heaven the same way Enoch did. You must believe that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose Romans Then no matter what happens, you will be all right.
In His time, the Lord will explain things to you if you will walk with Him in the light and not in the night. He showed us how to put on the whole armor of God. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God Ephesians When you have done all you can to stand, then stand. That shield of faith will stop all the fiery darts of the devil, and that can actually get exciting! When the devil starts shooting, just throw up the shield of faith. Then his darts will fall in a pile that will let him know that he has to get to God before he can get to you.
You must defeat the devil and serve the Lord with gladness. Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands.

But some of you carry depression and oppression when Jesus came to take those things away. God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him Acts Are you doing right before God? When you believe right, you will walk right; and when you walk right, you will receive right, so what are you worried about? You must turn your attention away from yourself and onto Jesus. Forget about your old, ugly self with its doubts, fears, oppression, depression and despair and be of good cheer.
In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world John To be happy, you must give your whole heart to the Lord in these troublesome times; and when you are rooted and grounded in His love, your whole heart will be in it. That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God Ephesians Peter said, Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you I Peter You will be afraid to get old, afraid you will get sick, afraid you will run out of money or afraid you are going to lose your job when you still have one.
You will be afraid to live and afraid to die, and you will be a mess. The Bible says, For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind II Timothy Take on the mind of Christ and get rid of all your fears. With Jesus, you have nothing to fear and nothing to worry about. The Bible says, There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love I John When Jairus was waiting to see Jesus so he could get healing for his daughter, a messenger came and said she had died.
But Jesus said, Be not afraid, only believe Mark You have to walk on with Jesus, too, no matter what is going on around you. Then the Lord walked in and said, Why make ye this ado, and weep? And they laughed him to scorn Mark , Jesus spoke with authority and told the people to leave. Then He walked over to the young girl who was supposed to have been dead, And he took the damsel by the hand, and said unto her, Talitha cumi; which is, being interpreted, Damsel, I say unto thee, arise.
And straightway the damsel arose, and walked; for she was of the age of twelve years. And they were astonished with a great astonishment Mark , The girl opened her eyes, and there was Jesus. Jesus treated death like sleep; and when you know the truth about death, that is the way you should treat it, too. You should never be afraid to go to sleep in Jesus. The Lord told me I was to go on television and show people receiving their healings. He wanted me to show Him at work, and that is what I have been doing for well over thirty years. Multitudes can see God healing, delivering and setting people free; and those who want to believe become believers in God no matter how much they may have doubted in the past.
Those who continue to doubt will seal their own doom, and the Lord will leave them alone. Now Jesus loved Martha, and her sister, and Lazarus. When he had heard therefore that he was sick, he abode two days still in the same place where he was…and after that he saith unto them [the disciples] , Our friend Lazarus sleepeth; but I go, that I may awake him out of sleep. Then said his disciples, Lord, if he sleep, he shall do well. Howbeit Jesus spake of his death: but they thought that he had spoken of taking of rest in sleep.

Then said Jesus unto them plainly, Lazarus is dead John ,6, Martha had forgotten that Jesus has all power; and Jesus saith unto her, Thy brother shall rise again. Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day John , That is how we get into trouble. Then Jesus saith unto her [Martha] , Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God?
Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid. And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me. And I knew that thou hearest me always: but because of the people which stand by I said it, that they may believe that thou hast sent me. And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth. And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with graveclothes: and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus saith unto them, Loose him, and let him go John There is just one stone between you and your miracle, between you and your happiness, between you and pure joy, between you and pure faith, peace and love; and you need to get that stone out of the way.
Common sense does not know the mysteries of God or have the full revelation of what is taking place. I had never remembered reading that in the Bible; but soon after that, I found that same thing in Psalms. O LORD, how great are thy works! Paul let us know that we can only know the deep things of God through the Holy Ghost.
Statement of Faith
For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. And the disciples came, and said unto him [Jesus] , Why speakest thou unto them in parables? He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given Matthew , Jesus did not want those who rejected Him to understand what He was saying, so He spoke to them in parables. However, He wanted the disciples to understand everything He said, and they had a chance to learn so much from Jesus.
We believe the human race was originally created by God, in His image, good and upright to have dominion over His creation Gen ; Humanity became separated from God and incapable of saving itself Rom All of mankind needs to turn from sin and trust personally in the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ, to receive redemption through the shed blood of Jesus Christ, the Son of God Rom We believe the power of sin and death was broken when Jesus bore our sin at the Cross and rose again, providing the only way of salvation for the whole person: spirit, soul, and body Hebrews ; 1 Thessalonians We regard the baptism of the Holy Ghost and fire as a valid and important experience for believers today; all believers are entitled to and should expect and seek the baptism according to the command of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Christians are members of the universal, mystical, body by faith-they are a holy priesthood of believers. Believers need to live out their commitment to Christ in love, unity, and community with other body members in the local church-this is the practical expression of Christian faith in action. Christ gifted His Church with unity and a five-fold ministry of apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers for maturing, ordering, equipping, and releasing the whole body to do the works of service, that reveal His glory.
Ephesians , to fulfill the Great Commission, evangelizing the world Acts ; Mark , Divine healing is an integral part of the Gospel. We believe that the laying on of hands, as practiced in the New Testament, is an operation of the ministry of the Holy Spirit for healing the sick, the baptism of the Holy Spirit, impartation of spiritual gifts, dedicating children to the Lord, sending out ministries Acts We believe all Christians are called into a life of separation from sinful practices and they should take every opportunity to promote righteousness and godliness James ; Romans , 2, ; 2 Corinthians ; 1 John Our Ministries.
Our Faith. Our Pastor. Jesus loving, family oriented church! All are welcome! We hold the Word of God to be the only authority in all matters and assert that no doctrine can be true or essential, if it does not find a place in this Word. The Old Testament reveals God in diverse manners, by manifesting his nature, character, and dominions. John , Matthew We believe that Jesus was and is eternal in his person and nature as the Son of God who was with God in the beginning of creation St. We believe that Jesus Christ was born of a virgin called Mary according to the scripture St.
Matthew , thus giving rise to our fundamental belief in the Virgin Birth and to all of the miraculous events surrounding the phenomenon St. The Holy Ghost is a gift bestowed upon the believer for the purpose of equipping and empowering the believer, making him a more effective witness for service in the world.
Apostolic Faith Pentecostal Church - What We Believe
When one receives a baptismal Holy Ghost experience, we believe one will speak with a tongue unknown to oneself according to the sovereign will of Christ. To be filled with the Spirit means to be Spirit controlled as expressed by MAN We believe that man was created holy by God, composed of body and soul. We believe that man, by nature, is sinful and unholy.
Being born in sin, he needs to be born again, sanctified and cleansed from all sins by the blood of Jesus. We believe that man is saved by confessing and forsaking his sins, and believing on the Lord Jesus Christ, and that having become a child of God, by being born again and adopted into the family of God, he may, and should, claim the inheritance of the sons of God, namely the baptism of the Holy Ghost.
We, therefore, conclude that man by nature, is sinful and that he has fallen from a glorious and righteous state from which he was created, and has become unrighteous and unholy. Man, therefore, must be restored to his state of holiness from which he has fallen by being born again St. This redemptive operation of the Holy Ghost upon sinners is brought about by repentance toward God and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ which brings conversion, faith, justification regeneration, sanctification, and the baptism of the Holy Ghost. Faith is a certain conviction wrought in the heart by the Holy Spirit, as to the truth of the Gospel and a heart trust in the promises of God in Christ Romans , ; St.
Luke , 9; Acts Regeneration is that act of God by which the principle of the new life is implanted in man, and the governing disposition of soul is made holy and the first holy exercise of this new disposition is secured. Sanctification is that gracious and continuous operation of the Holy Ghost, by which He delivers the justified sinner from the pollution of sin, renews his whole nature in the image of God and enables him to perform good works Romans ;; Colossians ; But since heaven must come down to earth, they also have a mission to earth.
Understanding Can Wait
The Bible indicates that they accompanied God in the Creation, and also that they will accompany Christ in His return in Glory. They are evil spirits, belonging to the unseen or spiritual realm, embodied in human beings. The Old Testament refers to the prince of demons, sometimes called Satan Adversary or Devil, as having power and wisdom, taking the habitation of other forms such as the serpent Genesis Matthew and it goes on to tell the works of Satan, The Devil, and Demons as combating righteousness and good in any form, proving to be an adversary to the saints.
Their chief power is exercised to destroy the mission of Jesus Christ. We believe they can be subdued and conquered as in the commandment to the believer by Jesus. It is animated by one Spirit, the Spirit of Christ. The Church then is the object of our faith rather than of knowledge. Matthew , the occasion being that of his benediction of Peter at Caesarea Phillippi. We admonish all who have this hope to purify themselves as He is pure. It is a commandment of Jesus to the Apostles St.
Jesus affirms his teachings on healing by explaining to His disciples, who were to be Apostles, that healing the afflicted is by faith St. Therefore, we believe that healing by faith in God has scriptural support and ordained authority. Elders to pray for the sick, lay hands upon them and to anoint them with oil, and that prayers with faith shall heal the sick and the Lord shall raise them up. Healing is still practiced widely and frequently in the Church of God in Christ, and testimonies of healing in our Church testify to this fact.
